I'm joining this club now :D

Yeah. Just bought a used k-5 from a friend.
k-5 + grip
I'm so excited, I had to vent some here.
Edit: The camera arrived in MINT++++++ condition. It looks brand new, and I'm not exaggerating one bit.
Compared to the camera, my 40ltd is a beat up junk.

Nice! Not sure what you are upgrading from, but either way you will love the K5. Looking forward to the photos.

Congratulations. The Grip is a terrific asset to the K-5 IMHO. I know folks love their K20Ds but the K-5 is a terrific performer.

If I lived in Vegas, I'd definitely research nigh sky photography (and time lapse) and go camping somewhere far enough from city lights when the air is cool and dry.

I'm upgrading from K20D.
I'll keep that one as a backup, most likely since it's not selling on the market here.

I was going to settle and get the K-01 due to a deal ($700 for a black body), but my friend just offered me a k-5 with a grip for $850. I took the deal on the spot. hahaha.

Excellent price, particularly with the $200 grip included!

I guess it pays to have friends all over the place.
